In September 2012, Kepier, in conjunction with former Sunderland defender Martin Scott of Improtech Soccer, opened the Kepier Elite Football Academy (KEFA). The first of its kind in the country, where talented young footballers receive specialised coaching alongside a structured timetable of lessons; with the aim of securing a pathway into further education or football career. Learners that are accepted into the KEFA take part in a customized timetable personalized to each individual between the hours of 8.30am and 5pm. Players are expected to fully engage in life at Kepier and will study for at least 8 GCSEs as well as attending the Kepier Elite Football Academy.
